Brentford Preview – Can the Bees make it seven straight home league wins?

Thomas Frank’s Brentford have responded expertly well after making a slow start to their season. The Bees have secured 11 wins from their last 17 Championship games to fire themselves up the table.

Brentford go into the midweek clash with fellow high-flyers Nottingham Forest in fifth place in the table. With West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United faltering in recent weeks, the London outfit are now just five points away from the top two places.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1850 GMT, Monday 27 January)

Brentford have been in superb shape at Griffin Park over the last couple of months or so, winning each of their last six on home turf in the Championship. Before last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup, Brentford had won seven home matches in a row in all competitions. Will they claim another victory in front of their home fans on Tuesday?

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can Lamouchi’s Reds leave the capital with a positive result?

Sabri Lamouchi’s men recently went five games without a league win, drawing twice and losing three times. However, the Reds have hit back with four wins and two draws from their last six in the Championship, with both of those draws coming against Reading.

Nottingham Forest were held to a 1-1 draw at Reading last time out, and they have won just one of their last five league and cup matches away from home. Still, Lamouchi’s men have been beaten only once on their travels in Championship action since October.

The Nottingham Forest supporters have endured several years of hurt after their club’s exit from the Premier League way back in 1999. However, they seem to be heading in the right direction under Lamouchi. Can the Reds pick up a vital victory away from home against one of their promotion rivals on Tuesday night?


Brentford vs Nottingham Forest Betting Advice

On paper, there’s hardly anything to split these two. Nottingham Forest have a point more, but Brentford’s goal difference is far better. When they clashed at the City Ground back in October, a Ben Watson goal shortly after half time gave Forest a narrow 1-0 win.


Key Facts – Brentford vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Brentford have won each of their previous six home league matches
  • Nottingham Forest are undefeated in six (four wins, two draws) in the Championship
  • Only a point and a place separate these two evenly matched teams in the table


I fancy this one to be another close encounter on the scoreline, but Brentford, who have been impeccable at home in recent months, should nick the points. A solitary goal could be enough in this one, so take a punt on the hosts to win by one goal at 12/5. As for the correct score, check out the 1-0 Bees win at 5/1.

It could also be worth having a punt on Ollie Watkins to score first at 10/3. Watkins is the joint leading scorer in the Championship with 18 goals to his name. He would love another one on Tuesday.
